A postmortem was conducted on the albino turtle that died at the Dehiwala Zoological Garden by two veterinarians attached to the Wildlife Office and the zoo today.

Out of the four turtles brought to the zoo from the Kosgoda Turtle Conservation Center, one turtle weighing 60 grams died last night.

Deputy Director General of the zoo Dammika Malsinghe said that zoo veterinarians used a special method to feed the animal as it refused fodder since it was shifted to the zoo last Friday.

Zoological Director General Anura de Silva told our news team that the Dehiwala Zoo did not have turtles in the past and so every possible facility was provided to the four turtles as they were sent under court orders issued by the Balapitiya Magistrate last Thursday.
